    I love this post, whenever I smell the smoke from a wood fireplace I think of when I was a very young kid, playing in the snow near dusk.

    Kelly’s is in the Newtown neighborhood of Sydney. Old favorite. 🙂

    I love this post! It’s so true all the things that can remind you of a place. I walked into an old favorite pub in Sydney the other night and even though it was probably just “pub smell” in my mind it was that familiar “Kelly’s Pub smell”. Brought me back to two years ago!

      Pub smell is awesome (as long as it isn’t cigarette laden.) The smell of wood and beer is nice. Where is Kelly’s? Our local is called O’Kellys.

    I agree, scent is definitely a trigger of memories. Freshly cut grass and the smell of wet soil remind me of our old home when I was still a kid.

    Sometimes, usually smaller places like homes and shops but I can’t wait to smell these scents when I finally get to Germany next month!

    The smell of stale air combined with the typical smell of electric motors and ozone reminds me of the metro in Paris or the tube in London.

      Yeah. Although Paris always smells of pee when I went through. Don’t remember so much about London smells.

    Whenever I smell diesel fumes from trucks or cars, I have to think of the small villages in Germany with their narrow cobblestone streets and the trucks on those streets. We don’t smell much diesel in Canada ! And on a brighter note.. the bakeries and the fresh breakfast buns!!!

      Diesel fumes is kind one of mine too. Definitely breakfast stuff.
